If we offer a discounted rate for advance payment for a particular Ad or Service, and you pay for 12 months in advance in accordance with our procedures, (i) the initial term for that Ad ("Discounted Ad") or Service ("Discounted Service") will be 12 months, and you may not cancel your Discounted Ads or Discounted Services until the end of the initial 12-month term, and (ii) subject to the provisions of Section 4, we will automatically renew your Discounted Ads and Discounted Services and will charge your credit card for another 12 months at the then applicable discount rate.
Revision/Cancellation. You may revise or cancel your request for Ads and Services only by written notice to email@example.com within 14 days after the Agreement Date. Thereafter, except as otherwise provided in these Terms and Conditions with respect to a particular product, there is no cancellation. If written notice of cancellation is received by us within in 14 days after the Agreement Date, we will refund your payment for such Ads and Services on a pro-rata basis based on the number of days your Ads and Services have been active. We may cancel your Ads and Services without notice at any time for any reason, and your payment will be refunded on a pro-rata basis based on the number of months your Ads and Services have in the Term.
Charges/Billing. You agree to pay, for the Ads and Services, the monthly rates listed on this Agreement for the period we provide the Ads and Services agreed to at anytime, rounded up to the nearest month (and for subsequent terms, the then current undiscounted rates). You also agree to pay any one-time charges listed on this Agreement and any taxes due on your Ads or Services. The rates for Ads do not include any technical or consulting services or changes to your Ads, except as otherwise provided. You agree to pay for any such services that you request at our standard rates. We may start billing before we publish or distribute Ads or begin providing Services
Payment Terms. You agree to pay all charges in full by the due date. You agree that you may not withhold any payment for any reason, including any dispute between you and us. We may require full or partial advance payment prior to providing any Ads or Services. You authorize us to review your credit history and to obtain your consumer report, and you agree that we may disclose to third parties information about you that we deem necessary to assess your credit rating or report your failure to make payments as required by this Agreement. We may apply payments from you, or monies owed to you, toward amounts owed under this Agreement. If you pay by credit card, we will bill the card automatically at the start of each billing period. You are responsible for payment of all charges even if your telephone number is disconnected or changed or you sell or close your business.
Late Charges. We will assess, and you agree to pay, late charges on account balances not paid by the due date. Late charges will begin to accrue after the due date at a rate equal to the lesser of 18% per annum or the highest lawful rate. In addition, if you submit a check or draft that is dishonored for any reason, you agree to pay, in addition to the face amount of the check or draft, a service fee in an amount equal to the highest lawful amount.
Our Remedies. If you do not pay all charges by 30 days after the due date, fail to meet any other obligation under this Agreement, or make any representation or warranty that is or becomes untrue, we may, without notice: require you to pay immediately all unpaid amounts you owe and will owe for all Ads and Services for the entire term of this Agreement;
remove, suspend, or modify your Ads;
suspend or terminate any Services;
recover all collection costs and attorneys' fees; and
pursue any other available legal or equitable remedies.
Limitation of Liability/Disclaimers. You agree to review the Ads and Services immediately after their publication or provision and to notify us in writing of any errors or omissions no later than 30 days after the error is first published or displayed or the Ad or Service omitted. You agree that we may provide free advertising pursuant to our then-current policies instead of a refund or credit to your account, and that we will have no liability with respect to any listings, Ads or Services provided to you at no cost. The total aggregate liability for us and our affiliates for errors in or omission of the Ads or Services, negligence, any breach of this Agreement, and any other cause of action or wrongful act is limited to, and shall in no event exceed, the lesser of the amount by which the value of the Ad or Service was diminished or
the amount you have paid for the Ad or Service giving rise to the liability (the "Liability Cap").
Waiver of Class Action and Jury Trial and Consent to Binding Arbitration. In any legal proceeding relating to this Agreement, the parties agree to waive any right they may have to participate in any class, group, or representative proceeding and to waive any right they may have to a trial by jury. Any claim, controversy, or dispute that arises under or relates to this Agreement (other than claims to collect amounts you owe us or claims by you alleging breach of this Agreement to recover amounts you have paid us), including any dispute regarding any listing, Ad or Service, any omissions, incorrect phone numbers or other errors, and any Ad placement concerns, shall be referred by the aggrieved party to binding arbitration under the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association.
Credit For Service Interruption. After beginning Ad term, there will be no credits, reductions, or setoff against the charges for downtime or interruption unless such interruption exceeds seventy-two (72) consecutive hours in duration. If you notify us of interruptions, we will provide you with a credit equal to 1/30 of the recurring monthly charge for each consecutive seventy-two (72) hour period from the time of notice of interruption until. Non-continuous interruptions may not be accumulated to support an adjustment. A credit allowance will not be given for mistakes, omissions, interruptions, delays, errors, defects or curtailments caused by your negligence or willful act, or mistakes, omissions, interruptions, delays, errors or defects caused by failure of equipment.
